"Energy from the Vacuum" by Tom Bearden

Energy From the Vacuum

by Tom Bearden
977 pages; 100+ illustrations; 6 x 9 x 2", soft cover, 4 lbs (1.8 kg); Published: 2002, Cheniere Press; $59.00


Energy from the Vacuum by Tom Bearden focuses on omissions in today's electrical physics that prohibit the extraction and harnessing of the most viable energy source for a sustainable future - radiant energy. The book is considered key for understanding Tesla technology. Although the concepts are explained very well, the graduate level mathematics can limit one's level of comprehension. The purpose of this Project is to shorten the learning curve of the qualified reader and answer the questions a layman will likely encounter.





CHAPTER 1 Foundations and Scientific Mindset 1

1.1 Introduction 1 1.1.1 EM Foundations Are Incomplete and Contain Errors

Q: Feymann, Wheeler, Bunge, Evans, Barrett and others, have pointed out that classical EM theory is seriously flawed. What are the flaws according to Bearden?

A: Bearden says, EM theory has two flaws: 1) The notion that EM energy flows through space, that was introduced by Poynting and Heaviside. 2) The symmetrical regauging of the original Maxwell-Heaviside equations by Lorentz that caused all Maxwellian systems with a COP (coefficient of power) > 1 to be discarded. Both flaws were introduced after Maxwell's death.

Q: Why is the notion of EM energy propagating through 3-space false?

A: The concept of 3-space is an output of the observation process. This becomes aparent at the quantum level. The observing mentality produces frozen tri-dimensional volumes at successive intervals along the time axis. The intervals are too minute to be detectable by the observing mentality. Thus, the illusion of continuity and motion through 3-space is produced. As the concepts of force and energy arise from the illusion of continuity/motion through 3-space, they too are false.
